Endangered species

A Walk in Nature

In the Okanagan, trails are wide. That way, people can use them as exercise routes. The idea is to get out into nature.

More practically, the invasive weeds thrive so well that it is deemed necessary to blast them with toxins, such as this yellowed, poisoned alfalfa, even though it is much used by insects, which use it to replace their own native food sources that have been extirpated by other non-flowering invasive species. And so, the human desire to get out into nature extirpates its last remnants.

It’s what we do. Let’s not say otherwise.
